Cornyn: Akin ‘Should Carefully Consider What Is Best For Him’ And The GOP

August 20, 2012 9:35 am

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, hinted Monday that Rep. Todd Akin should reconsider his Senate bid in the wake of controversial comments he made about rape and pregnancy.

“Congressman Akin’s statements were wrong, offensive, and indefensible,” Cornyn said in a statement. “I recognize that this is a difficult time for him, but over the next twenty-four hours, Congressman Akin should carefully consider what is best for him, his family, the Republican Party, and the values that he cares about and has fought for throughout his career in public service.”
